Dinghy's Beach Bar & Grill

Water Island | (340) 227-5525

Dinghy's Beach Bar & Grill is a logical choice worth considering if you are going to be spending time seeing this part of the island; it is two and a half miles (four kilometers) to the south west of Charlotte Amalie.

Havana Blue

Bellevue, St. Thomas | (340) 715-2583

Havana Blue is a smart choice worth considering if you're exploring this neighborhood. Charlotte Amalie is a mile and a half (two and a half kilometers) to the north-northwest. Perhaps you could guess that this place is best known for Caribbean creations and one favorite, seafood, but we shouldn't forget they're also masters of tapas.

The restaurant features an assortment of items that fall into either the aperitivos (tapas) or entree menu. Both have mostly seafood items, such as Miso Sea Bass and El Tigre Tempura, but they do offer chicken, steak, and vegetarian options. Pair your meal with a glass, or two, of wine from Havana Blue's signature and expansive wine list, or you can finish your dinner with a tasty cocktail and beautiful sunset view.

Reservations are not required, but are highly recommended to guarantee seating.
